A series of neo-Nazi stickers have started popping up in London, which is a worrying reminder that neo-Nazism has seen a sharp rise in recent times in many areas of the world. One sticker, found in central London says ‘Good Night Left Side’ – a fascist take on the anti-racist slogan ‘Good Night White Pride’.
Shockingly, the sticker also featured the car that was used to mow down people at the anti-racist protests in Charlottesville last month and tragically killed 32-year-old Heather Heyer. It’s truly sickening that anyone would consider this something to be celebrated.
Researcher for Faith Matters, Steve Rose, discovered the sticker on a lamp post. He took the action of taking a photo of it before ripping it down. It’s a small victory, but a victory nonetheless. He said:
The sticker is representative of the potentially more violent form of neo-Nazi activism.
Its use of a Dodge Charger vehicle is a disturbing and deliberate choice following the terroristic murder of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville.
It is intended to threaten communities and individuals they perceive to be on the “left”.
This incident is an example of a direction that society really shouldn’t be going in and it’s scary to think that neo-Nazism is on the rise.
Of course, you shouldn’t fight violence with violence, but at the same time there’s nothing more satisfying than watching a Nazi getting punched in the face. So wrong, but also so right.
